by William Hanley: adapted for radio by William Ash with Alfie Bass as Max and Alan Gifford as Charlie

Charlie and Max, two shabbily dressed old men, sit in a public park watching the passers-by and gently reminiscing about life. To the casual onlooker they present a normal picture, but the two old men are sharing a secret so big that they can scarcely talk of it to each other.

(Broadcast in 1964: Third)
(A chance to hear again some of the best one-hour plays broadcast in recent years.)
*Next Week: "Nor Iron Bars A Cage" by Eynon Evans)
